A contemporary DOWNTON ABBEY that has a dash of the supernatural, a hot and heavy romance and a deadly family mystery.
“There’s something hidden in the maze.” Seventeen-year-old Imogen Rockford has never forgotten the last words her father said to her, before the blazing fire that consumed him, her mother, and the gardens of her family’s English country manor.
For seven years, images of her parents’ death have haunted Imogen’s dreams. In an effort to escape the past, she leaves Rockford Manor and moves to New York City with her new guardians. But some attachments prove impossible to shake
—including her love for her handsome neighbor, Sebastian Stanhope. Then a letter arrives that forces Imogen to return to the manor in England, where she quickly learns that dark secrets lurk behind Rockford’s aristocratic exterior and at the center of it is Imogen herself—and Sebastian, the boy she never stopped loving.
Combining spine-tingling mystery, powerful romance, and unforgettable characters, Suspicion is an action-packed thrill ride.
This book made me think about the secret garden. It was a suspenseful and powerful mysterious story. You have this young girl that lost most of her family in a deadly fire. Then loses the rest of her family but she didn’t know about it until Harry Morgan came to tell Imogen that she is now the duchess of Rockford. Imogen had always loved her neighbour, Sebastian, but she found out after the death of her parents that they were together. It was something that helped her choose to not come back until she had to.
Imogen had to decide if she would go back to the place she lost her family. Who wouldn’t when told that you are the only person that will be able to make sure that everyone has a job that they have done almost their whole lives. But there is a mystery still going around about her family. It is crazy how long it takes to find out everything but it is in a good way. You find what really happened on the night she lost her family, what actually happened to her cousin, and what is happening to Imogen. I highly recommend this book if you like paranormal and mystery.
